Yesterday we brought you word that Dylan O’Brien had suffered major injuries on the set of the third ‘Maze Runner’ movie, subtitled ‘The Death Cure’.  O’Brien, who plays main character Thomas in the film series, was performing a stunt involving a car that went awry and the actor, also known for starring on MTV’s ‘Teen Wolf’, was run over, suffering several broken bones.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital in Vancouver where he currently resides as he recovers.  Not surprisingly, production on the movie has shut down while O’Brien recuperates.

For those concerned, Wes Ball, who has directed all three ‘Maze Runner’ movies, has released the following update:

Wes-Ball1“Well, it’s been a whirlwind of emotions these past few days. I’ve been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt.

“But ultimately I find myself left with just a deep love and respect for Dylan.  He is one tough cookie.  I’m sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew.  It’s scary seeing your friend get hurt, but fortunately, Dylan is going to be just fine. After a few weeks of rest and recovery he will be back up and running to finish our adventure together.  All the best.”

Ball offered his well wishes via a hand-written letter on Twitter, which you can read below:

Many others have voiced their support of O’Brien through social media, including James Dashner, the writer of ‘The Maze Runner’ novels:

Also rallying behind ‘Styles’ are his ‘Teen Wolf’ co-stars, namely Max Carver:

We also send our positive vibes to O’Brien and hope for a speedy recovery.

‘The Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ is scheduled for release on February 17, 2017, but it’s unclear if these developments will delay that.
